He told me that he and a few of his friends made the cut. They had competed with some of the other boys on the team and they had come in the fastest running a 57 (seconds) in their leg of the 4x4. This qualified him and those other boys to compete in the Stanford Invitational Track Meet. He was...

I drive into work every morning knowing all of the things that I need to do for the entire day. My brain wakes up to the words of something inspirational while I am getting dressed, I then drive with laughter and information on the radio as I change from KGO to 100.1 to WOW gospel in the cd player...

Son
When my second oldest child was a baby he was kind, quiet, very observant and he still is. The only difference is that he has lost the baby fat, his Mohawk is now a close cut style, he is taller than me, his voice is deeper and he has a girlfriend.  He is running track and the gazelle...

Monday through Friday I wake up early to have a cup of coffee, get dressed and listen to some Word. I go to the site Lightsource and listen to a short snippet of a sermon at no charge. This morning I listened to Beth Moore. I don’t know anything about her other than whenever I have heard her speak...

Posted by adminFebruary 27, 2014 My middle son has told me for the past  5 or 6 years that he didn’t want a girlfriend. He would always say that they were distracting and that he wanted to go to college. I was always telling him that just because you think like that now doesn’t mean you...

I want to write about something but nothing is all that comes out. My mind is a flurry of so many thoughts and yet I cannot find one thing that I can blog about. The concepts of justice and injustice are paramount in my mind. The feelings of wrong and right run through my mind. There is a feeling...

When the alarm goes off I hit snooz maybe two times and then I get up. This is my favorite time of day. When everyone is sleep, no one is talking, no one is talking to ME and I can enjoy a hot cup of coffee that was freshly brewed in the morning. I love the peace and quiet. I love waking up knowing...

I finally had my laptop just the way I liked it and then it went and stopped working.  I had to have all of my files downloaded onto a flash drive and then loaded on to the new laptop.  Now I have been forced to upgrate to Windows 2013 and all these tiles are popping up on my screen...

One of the hardest things for me to do is to keep my opinions to myself because even when I don't speak my opinion, my body language reveals what I really want to say. What I am learning is that in order for me to not speak what I think I really have to remove myself from the presence of the person...
